Description:

Scalable video coding allows an efficient provision of video services at different quality levels with different energy demands. In order to deal with the resulting trade-off we analyze the number of video layers that are worth to be received taking into account the energy constraints. On one hand, a single-objective optimization is proposed based on dynamically selecting the number of layers, which is able to minimize the energy consumption with the constraint of a minimal quality threshold to be reached. However, this approach cannot reflect the fact that the same increment of energy consumption may result on different increments of visual quality. Thus, a multi-objective optimization is proposed and a utility function defined in order to weight the energy consumption and the visual quality criteria. Finally, since the optimization solving mechanism is computationally expensive to be implemented in mobile devices, a heuristic algorithm is proposed. This way mobile operators and end users could significally reduce their energy consumption while keeping reasonable quality levels.
